HOW MANY times have you rushed to change your shirt after noticing white deodorant stains streaking the fabric?
Well, one beauty expert has revealed the tool she uses to remove unsightly stains – and you probably have it in your makeup bag.

At the start of her video demo, TikTok user Ketheny Dutka showed off a patch of deodorant stains under the arms of her black sleeveless top.
Instead of switching her top, she used a dry makeup sponge to blot away the deodorant, leaving a clean shirt behind.
“This is life-changing,” Ketheny said in the caption.
The technique is similar to how you would use the sponge to blend makeup.
Starting where the stains are heaviest, you should blot and swipe the sponge over the area.
The contours of the sponge make it easy to lift deodorant from folds and seams.
Plus, the sponge is used dry so there’s no awkward wet patch left behind.
Store a backup sponge in your purse, so if you notice a stain after leaving the house, you can take care of it instantly.
And there’s no need to use a high-end blending sponge for stain removal, either.
You can buy a multipack of sponges for under $10 online, which means these handy clothes-cleaning tools cost less than a dollar each for dozens of uses.
Additionally, if you’re trying to remove a blood stain instead of a deodorant stain, break out the first-aid kit and put this cleaning trick to work.
While a makeup sponge isn’t enough to remove stains from a mattress, these three household products are perfect for the job.
